Welcome Mafanikio Academy

Mafanikio Academy is a training institution that specializes in Life Skills Training to all groups of people ranging from young adults to mature adults. The Academy is the first of its kind to be launched in Tanzania. The Academy started in 2015 after realising the widening skills gaps that exist between employers /general life needs and what is taught at the schools and colleges. The developed skills training program will enable young adults/graduates to succeed at everything in life. This is a one stop success centre that created opportunities and empower people to remove their success obstacles.


Life skills are one of the critical elements for people to succeed in today’s challenging environment. Although people s’ around the world are more and more likely to pursue formal education, upon graduation they often find that they are not adequately prepared for the world of work or other challenging life ahead. This is because skills relevant to key growth sectors of the modern economy specifically “soft” skills – are often not covered in traditional education systems. Employers and Society in general often find a “skills mismatch” between the competencies youth adults need to succeed in the workplace and general life, and those they actually possess. This is a critical challenge for today’s youth adults.

Mafanikio Academy is designed to help participants harness and hone their innate talents and skills while developing new skills. The result is an individual who carries a powerful skillset that can help him or her navigate through life successfully at every turn. Young adults in particular aren’t always as prepared for self-sufficient living as they could be, and life skills training help to smooth over any rough edges that exist in a person’s skillset.

This is a comprehensive behaviour change approach that concentrates on the development of the skills needed for life such as communication, decision–making, thinking, managing emotions, assertiveness, self–esteem building, resisting peer pressure, relationship skills etc. It addresses the development of the whole individual—so that a person will have the skills to make use of all types of information. Life skills enable individuals to deal effectively with the demands and challenges of everyday life.

Life skills have shown to improve young adult’s chances of succeeding in their life by more than 70%. Some of the benefits of attending life skills trainings at Mafanikio Academy are:

  • Improved economic outcomes for participants:
    Life skills programs have been shown to increase the earning potential of people in employment, business and political life.

  • Improve education outcomes for people:
    Recent research has demonstrated that when people are provided interventions that include non-academic supports in social-cognitive skills, learning outcomes improve as do completion/graduation rates.

  • Increase employer satisfaction with new hires:
    Life skills programs strengthen young people’s abilities in many areas that employers consider particularly important when hiring new employees. Employers often report a higher level of satisfaction with entry-level employees who have gone through life skills training than those who have not.

  • Change personal behaviour and social attitudes of youth:
    Life skills programs allow people to create a life plan and equip them with the skills to take steps toward achieving their goals.

  • Increase people’s well-being and help them to develop into active and productive members of their communities.
